enough of those details right that people can buy into the show. barack obama is not watching the show because it's a brilliant portrayal of the c.i.a. it gets enough of the details what it feels like to be in those situations. i have no idea why i like the show -- the think it's less about details. michael described it as it's not a palemic and i think audiences smell propaganda but if you can introduce the complexity of what they do. "24" was not about a good choice and bad choice but the better of two bad choices. if there was a formula of "24" that would have been it. and i think these people saw and president obama sees as well there is something about the presentation of the complexity of some of the things that people who are charged with these jobs have to deal with. writing it and imagining it makes me glad it's not my job just imagining how tough some of these decisions must be makes you grateful. >> the verse that we show in frost nixon "the queen" and that is how much responsibility you take with that, especially when art itself is working in metaphors. when people ask me a

responsibility. >> sorry if i cut you off. you can see there president obama speaking just a moment ago from the white house briefing room. he talked about that he is optimistic that senators are working on an agreement right now and the president would bring an up or down vote on a middle-class tax hike and unemployment insurance if congress cannot reach an agreement that will pass both chambers. we're going to go to shawn on the independent line. >> good evening. they will find a deal. the real date is not until january 31 when you will really see the severe impacts. the markets are having some turbulence that is caused by the politicians. we should look at our senators, the congressman, and the staffers who work their offices and see how they are trading in the stock market. they should be subject to the filings that the f.c.c. requires of corporations when trading their own stock. 15 day notice prior to buying stock and i think you will see less drama going on and [laughter] -minute changes. >> shawn, you mentioned that the dow jones closed down 150 points today. we're going take on

. president obama offered several concessions. now republicans need to give up at least an equal amount on the revenue side. right now, definitely early in 2013, my constituents in the virgin islands need relief from the highest energy cost in the country and a fair medicaid match so everyone can have access to quality health care. whatever partisan differences we have and the republicans have with our president, let's set them aside in this difficult year comes to a close an work together to give our constituents a happy new year. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. for what purpose does the gentlewoman from texas rise? without objection. ms. johnson: madam speaker, i rise today to implore the house g.o.p. leadership to address the looming fiscal cliff. we have only a few hours left and we owe it to the american people to find a solution. pass legislation and send it to the president for his signature tonight. there's too much at stake to let this critical situation devolve into the same politics as usual. that we have seen throughout this congress. the consequ

to try to improve the job situation. and, fundamentally the concerns people have right now have to do with the fairness of the political system and the fairness of the economic system. that is the realm in which i think obama had an upper hand and played that. mitt romney making statements about 47% helped him in that regard it is not about class resentment. it is not middle income class and lower income resent middle- class people but the to the system as unfair. that the way benefits are distributed is unfair, and they want to see a system move in the direction of fairness. i think that theme played very well to obama and helped to overcome the headwinds he faced in that respect. but if it is there in a review of the election. then what i would like to do is open it up to more of a conversation and more of a question and answer. there are a lot of other things we steady besides voting and what voters decided. we study technology and how it is changing the way people engaged with campaigns. we study a lot about survey research as a practice going on. i am open to talking about those

early years of the obama administration. perhaps it's a response to the crisis we had of course, occupy wall street. at the same time the tea party movement is seen as maybe as an evading force on the right and occupy's wall street one year anniversary just came and went quietly. i wonder what this can teach us about social movements going forward? >> first and foremost, i have to admit i'm a liberal with a capital l. i firmly believe in women's right and that most republicans are really annoying right now. so the problem with social movements and the good thing about places like moveon.org or that avas.org is that you can see these movements as catalyzers. there are certain manifestos and writing that they were citing as some of their key documents. the good news is that they seem to have overplayed their hand. ann coulter was never fun to me. they are building more cultural capital now. i'm hoping to see a lot more of the people who actually won the culture wars which is people who believe in human rights, women's choice, gay marriage, all these things that would make normal tea party
